SpiritualitySan Diego, CA – I recently read a CNN article titled: Illusion of Control: Why the world is full of elevator buttons that don’t work. Go ahead and read it if you want; it’s pretty interesting. If you’re lazy like me and want to skip the reading, just read that title one more time…

This article was not published on DesiringGod.com or TheGospelCoalition.com This article was published on a mainstream secular website, yet it’s themes ring true to those of the bible. Proof that all of our problems on this earth and in our own hearts can be traced back to one thing – sin & brokenness.

Written by Sgt. Katie Eggers
Headquarters, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault)

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionBaghdad, Iraq – Early Sunday morning at Union III, the sound of a guitar and hymns being sung could be heard among the pitter-patter of raindrops. Before the sun had even come up, a group of Soldiers endured the weather to gather for an Easter sunrise service. By the end of the service, the rain subsided, giving Soldiers the opportunity to take in their surroundings.

The Easter sunrise service was just one of five religious services held at Union III and one of many services across the Combined Joint Force Land Component Command – Operation Inherent Resolve (CJFLCC-OIR) area of operations in celebration of the holiday.

“At each location across the CJFLCC we held Christian services, which include protestant and Catholic, and Latter Day Saints,” said Lt. Col. David A. Bowlus, CJFLCC-OIR chaplain.

Austin Peay State University to get visit from Famed French scholar and Medieval Literature Expert April 4th

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – About 700 years ago in Medieval France, several artists began producing extremely political works of art.

Looking upon their paintings or writings today, it may seem that these individuals were simply depicting religious scenes from the Bible, but the scenes they picked were meant to influence society’s views on governance.

Please Don’t Think You Know Me

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Please don’t think you “know” me.

Please don’t take a look at me, or even my public self on social media and think you got me all figured out.

Just because I am a woman, does not mean I cannot take charge.

Just because I am little, doesn’t mean I won’t put up a fight.

Just because I am a Christian, doesn’t mean I am judging you. «Read the rest of this article»

 


Alley Poet’s Pen: Long Live the Wink!

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/WriterNashville, TN – They say a good wink can reach across a room…

But I had almost forgot it existed. I might have thought it had become old fashioned: a relic of a bygone era, or only done well in the movies, perhaps by the likes of George Clooney, who seems to be caught often by photographers with one eyelid clamped down tightly.

But then it happened to me. Three times. Well, probably more times than that, but many were just downcast lashes lost in memory; I’m talking three memorable times in my life. The first can’t count. (It was years ago and I was taken.) But in the past two years, I have twice had (dare I say a flirtation with?) the kind of wink that travels beyond the eye level and transforms somehow into a physical current—one of inexplicable (and downright distracting!) strength.

Austin Peay State University’s Visiting Writer Series to feature Harrison Scott Key

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – “The South is a strange place, one that can’t be fit inside a movie, a place that dares you to simplify it, like a prime number, like a bible story … like my father.”

Born in Memphis, TN and raised in Mississippi, Harrison Scott Key knows a thing or two about life in the South – and the unique people that call it home.

Much like the South, Key’s father was also one-of-a-kind. The author, comedian and university professor’s new book, titled “The World’s Largest Man: A Memoir” tells the story of a bookish boy, sharing a house with a father who often seemed at odds with the society his son embraced.

Alley Poet’s Pen: “Prosperity” in National Hunger Awareness Month

 

Alley Poet's Pen - Sandee GertzNashville, TN – A tube of toothpaste. A New Testament mini-bible. A can of Old English Malt Liquor beer. That was all I found at the base of trees of the State Capitol lawn where a young man had been laying in the sun without a shirt on for two days in the Nashville heat.

A cardboard sign was propped up against his tennis shoes: “HUNGRY” was scrawled on it in capital letters—hastily it appeared—in fine point pen.

“You know when everything inside of you is weak…“So numb you don’t want to speak…”

Writing left at the camp of a young man expressing hunger and need.
